-While PUCV also offers Programa Internacional de Intercambio Estudiantil (PIIE) which complements its educational programs with a wide variety of extracurricular, tourist, and cultural activities that bolster language learning, exchange students from the United States cannot take PIIE courses taught in English. There are various ways for undergraduate students to study abroad at PUCV, each catering to the needs of both the student and the university.
-Regular University Courses are confirmed at the beginning of each term. The registration process will be held during orientation. Some Law and Philosophy courses are offered on an annual basis.
For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
